There isn't one "best" specialty of doc for FM.  Many people see a Rheumatologist, but others are treated by a neurologist or even their family doctor with good results.  It really depends on the doctor and his/her attitude and experience with FM.  The important thing is to find a doc you like and build a relationship with her.  Someone who listens and takes the time to consider what you're saying is more important than a certain specialty.
